When it comes to home safety, it is important to be proactive in order to protect your family and your belongings. One of the best ways to do this is to perform regular home safety inspections. But how often should these inspections be done?
Ideally, a home safety inspection should be completed at least once a year. During this inspection, you should check for potential hazards, such as loose wires, broken locks, and faulty wiring. You should also make sure that all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are functioning properly.
In addition to this annual inspection, you should also perform smaller inspections every few months. This includes checking things such as exposed outlets, checking batteries in smoke detectors, and making sure fire extinguishers are fully charged.
